Dinner with my agent.


I arrived in Seoul City yesterday, which wasn’t as stressful as I thought. Being a Sunday the traffic wasn’t too bad, though it still took me an hour to find my hotel!

I needed to meet my agent to pay for the import of the bike. (I like saying that as it makes me sound like a famous actor or rock star!). I actually mean my shipping agent, or freight forwarder as they’re called.

Wendy has been awesome, making sure everything was in order. I’ve heard some horror stories regarding vehicle import, but so far, so good as they say. She knows my agent in Russia (Yuri) and reckons he’s pretty good too.

We had a Korean BBQ, which I really enjoyed. It’s a great idea where they plonk a genuine tub of hot coals in the middle of the table. You cook your own meat while the smoke is extracted by special ducted vacuum tubes.

Could you imagine the health and safety concerns back home? Or the risk assessments? Insurance premiums?

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
